Australian rock band whose members were in their mid-teens when they won a radio competition with the song "Tomorrow", later to feature on their debut album Frogstomp. An excellent straight-forward rock album, Frogstomp nonetheless received some criticism for being unoriginal sounding. Perhaps in response to that, each Silverchair album has become musically more diverse and adventurous, and in 2002's Diorama, classic rock was fused with pure pop, orchestral passages and sampling to create a truly original record, the songwriting peak of the band's career to date.

Front man Daniel Johns is currently playing with fellow Australian Paul Mac in a band called The Dissociatives.

i was 11 years old when frogstomp album was released. two years later (i'm 13 years old then), their second album (freakshow) was released. and now, silverchair is still rockin'. it's been 14 YEARS since they enter the music industry. I LOVE THIS BAND especially front man, DANIEL JOHNS. nothing can compare to SILVERCHAIR. the original songs that they wrote, their original tune, DANIEL JOHNS have a powerful voice. I love silverchair! Long live grunge! long live SILVERCHAIR!

You are cool!

Hey, Silverchair! You guys are cool! I loved your song on YouTube - Israel's sons. I found you when I googled Music Israel.
